From what I understand, they are not re-selling Rogers. They are installing their own hardware in all the POIs (thus why only certain parts of ON are online currently) which then hooks up into their network and uses their peering back to the Internet. This is why the $2 fee increase came to DSL Premium, to help cover all the costs of buying this equipment for cable apparently. IF they were merely re-selling, you'd surely have access, and every place that Rogers has coverage.

If they were reselling Rogers, I don't think the prices/bandwidth would be where it's at.

And my DSL is all fixed up, so we can use this thread for whatever
